Book Description Mariner Books, United States, 1995. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The World of Venice is a classic book that offers an incomparable take on an incomparable city. Jan Morris s new foreword brings readers up to date on 1990s Venice, a city jam-packed with its admirers, jangling its profits, flaunting its theatrical splendors, enlivened once more by that old Venetian aphrodisiac - success. Incorporating the best aspects of travel writing and popular history, Morris transcends both genres by creating a composite portrait of Venice, artfully blending the fabled city s rich past with its current reality. Writing with singular zest and perceptiveness, Morris explores each of the city s aspects in all of its seasons, evoking the character of this unique locale through its arts, its food, and the personality of its people.
